A senior member of the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) medical team in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for IPL 2020 has tested positive for COVID-19. This comes after 13 members of Chennai Super Kings have tested positive on reaching UAE.
Two people have also tested positive for coronavirus at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru. Speaking to ANI, sources confirmed that a senior member of the BCCI medical team has tested positive and two people at NCA.
“It is true, but there is no issue as he (senior medical officer) is asymptomatic and has been kept in isolation. He has not been in contact with anyone and possibly contracted it during his travel to the UAE. He is being monitored and should hopefully be fine in the next round of testing. We also have two people at the NCA who have tested positive and have been kept in isolation,” the sources said.
